and general dempsey. i'm curious though, do you know what the cia was doing at that benghazi conflict, what was their job? >> i do not know what their job was, and i'm sure it was gathering intelligence, but the thing that was really frustrating about it is, general dempsey and secretary panetta who are admire, basically said, well, there was nothing we could do. it's 330 miles from the base in crete, to benghazi. if we'd had assets there, they could have reacted. remember, this attack lasted for seven hours, two of the americans died in the last hour. and they believed somehow this threat at the consulate in benghazi was no different than many other places in the world. i am absolutely confident there was no place in the world where there was the attack on the british ambassador, the red cross closed and on august 15th, a message that said they could not resist a sustained attack on the consulate and yet, there was no provision made to move any department of defense asset, either air or ground, anywhere near the consulate in benghazi. that's reprehensible. >> greta: and the reason that i a
. >>> we just got this information. we gt an early look at the joint chiefs of staff, martin dempsey's testimony later today, he's going to acknowledge that the u.s. diverted a drone to benghazi within minutes of learning of the attack on the u.s. consulate. carrie, i guess we shouldn't be surprised. >> no. i mean, it's really fascinating. this is a program that really for -- until now the administration wouldn't even acknowledge exists. in their freedom of information requests put in by journalists, the journalists would get a response that the government would neither confirm nor deny the existence or nonexistence of memos that describe the legal basis for this program. so this is a really sort of fascinating turn that we're getting just a lot more information and, you know, the administration is acknowledging, you know, that this program is as comprehensive as this, even the fact that a drone was diverted to benghazi is just something that, you know, who would have expected. >> and nia-malika, this is the kind of thing that i think people expect, but there are 11 states considerin
leon panetta and general martin dempsey chair of the joint chiefs said they made that recommendation to president obama. panetta told a senate hearing that, in the end, the president decided against sending in arms. instead, the u.s. has provided only humanitarian aid to the rebels. secretary panetta also defended the military's response to the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. the assault killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. panetta testified there'd been no specific warning of an imminent attack, so u.s. forces were too far away to respond. >> the united states military, as i've said, is not and frankly should not be a 911 service capable of arriving on the scene within minutes to every possible contingency around the world. the u.s. military has neither the resources nor the responsibility to have a firehouse next to every u.s. facility in the world. >> sreenivasan: republican senator john mccain of arizona argued the military could have deployed in time, if it had heeded warnings coming from the consulate and ambassador stevens. a 21-year-old
-- jennifer? general? dempsey. >> caller: they had me call the embassy to see if they wanted me to extent the special security team there, and was told no. >> stephanie: what? first of all the republicans are the ones that -- they said no to funding for extra security. >> exactly. >> stephanie: senator [ inaudible ]. >> your responses, general dempsey are very inadequate and in my opinion the same kind of inadequacy for the security that you provided at that consulate. [ phone bell chimes ] >> stephanie: everyone the president nominates are troubling. >> i'm troubled but i haven't found anything troubling about you yet but i'll find something. >> stephanie: corky in rochester, new york. hello, corky. >> caller: hello, stephanie. >> stephanie: hi. >> caller: there's a guy here that i'm sure you know. he had a 15 year old kid call in to his radio show and defend the right to own magazines and assault weapons, and i thought oh, my god what is this kid hearing at his dinner table? he is 15 years old. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: it's affecting the children, these guys. >> st

, four armed military assets to respond. that is not just my view or gender dempsey's view. it was the view of the accountability review board that studied what happened on that day. in the months and the tragedy, at the temporary mission facility in the nearby annex in benghazi, we have learned there were actually two short duration attacks that occurred is six hours apart. again, there was no specific intelligence that indicated that a second attack would occur at the annex located two miles away. the bottom line is this -- we were not dealing with a prolonged or continuous assault which could have been brought to win end by us military response. although we had forces deployed to the region. time, distance, a lack of an adequate warning, even said moved very quickly on the ground, prevented a more immediate response. >> tonight we will show you that hearing in its entirety, beginning at 8:00 eastern on the c-span2. >> there is no prescription or role model or cookbook for being first lady. if you look back at the lives of martha washington or abigail adams or dolly madis
